We walked the beach yesterday morning.
It was a beautiful January day, warm and bright. The ocean was calm, the beach was full of people walking their dogs. And the sand was full of rocks too.
ALL KINDS OF ROCKS.
So Justin and I made a game of finding all the heart-shaped rocks we could spot. We found big ones and little ones. Green ones. Red ones. Sea glass ones too.
Part of the fun is finding the rocks that actually resemble a heart — because sometimes you really have to cheat it. Like visually morphing a triangle. Or holding the sideways Salvador Dalí -ish heart on its side to make it work.
But yesterday I spotted the most perfect heart-shaped rock, just shining up at the sky.
So I placed it in the palm of my hand and gave it to Justin with a big, silly, grin on my face.
“This is for you. Don’t ever, ever lose it!”
It was also my gift of the day.
From my heart, in the form of a rock.
I’m learning that not all gifts have to be big or expensive or outlandishly amazing.
Sometimes they are just a rock.
Straight from the heart.
